If you do use this work, the artists ask that you mention (credit) them by name (Attribution). Most of them also ask that if you do create derivatives of their work and/or incorporate their work into a new work, you license that new work under a similar license to the public (Share Alike aka copyleft). These conditions can be waived by the artist(s) aka author(s) aka creator(s) aka owner(s) of the work for any purpose.

I rant, ramble, read texts, credit tracks, and arrange these musical selections into a package containing notes, a playlist, and (sometimes) cover art; that work is ©2015 Alex O'Brien, but (hopefully) effectively dedicated to the public domain under the terms of the CC0 1.0 Universal license. I do appreciate attribution to Alex O'Brien and/or Amateur Zen. This program as a whole is licensed to the public under the terms of Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International 4.
This program comes with no warranty. If you are engaging in any "new work", which I enthusiastically encourage, be sure to actually read the licenses that correspond to the works your modifying or re-using. The human-readable summaries of the Creative Commons licenses are quite short, and even the "legal code" accessible on the web is quite concise and readable.
Most selections are slightly altered, modified, and/or mixed with other selections. Many tracks are voiced over. My intent is to compose in the spirit of my inspirations: the diverse variety of terrestrial and Internet radio programming I grew up listening to and continue to consume (more "podcasts" these days, thank heavens). There are certain disc-jockey and pre-produced radio "treatments" we, as a society, have grown accustomed to hearing. These include cross-fades, fade-ins, fade-outs, auto-ducks (as Audacity and I call them), voice-overs, stingers and bumpers that may bleed slightly into primary content, etc. The last thing I intend to do is obscure the authorship of the skilled industrialists whose work I feature, or infringe upon their due credit. If you need details on any of these modifications, feel free to ask me.↩
